Paranoia (I)

From the dismal proceedings of the Bow-Wow Parliament, a scoundrel finds her last refuge:

MS JONES: The minister says she provided us with a copy, she invited us to come and view documents in her office which we have started to do this morning I would say to the minister. She knows we are going to continue to do that until Friday. My question to the minister is this, Mr. Speaker, why are they not costing the inventory? They say they do not trust Abitibi yet they are putting all of their trust in Abitibi in providing them with the cost of remediation on this project. Minister, why are you not providing those numbers yourself?

MS JOHNSON: Mr. Speaker, I have explained this several times over and over and somebody said to me on the weekend, they wonder who the Leader of the Opposition works for is it the Quebec government or is it Abitibi, they could not figure it out.

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Oh, oh!

MS JOHNSON: Her question certainly speaks to why that person asked me that.
I have explained time and time again that is why we issued the orders, to get the next phase of the environmental site assessment done, which is phase three. It looks at risk assessment. It is up to Abitibi to submit a remediation plan to us. We sign off on that remediation plan and only then will the cost be known because the cost is a responsibility of Abitibi that is why we are taking it through the court process, Mr. Speaker.

SOME HON. MEMBERS: Hear, hear!

That person who said those things, of course, was likely Hisself.

It was only a matter of time before the ineffectual minister or one of her colleagues trotted out the old treason chestnut.
